The first feeling you have arriving at Villa Aurora is the strong energy emanating from a wild and uncontaminated place. Landscape, Nature and tradition do the rest: breathtaking view toward the horizon, a green meadow bathed in the humid light of a sinking sun and inhabiting the Cretan culture and tradition. The Villa has been to combine the cretan tradition, leisure and the strong vibes that release you from negativity and enhance you, with positive and strong energy. The house is very private and surrounded by conservation land, wood and rocks. The priority is the relationship between the inside and outside living space. Villa's inside material are used by main color palette is neutral cream tones, but traditional jewel tones are added throughout the space through the use of accessories...The first feeling you have arriving at Villa Aurora is the strong energy emanating from a wild and uncontaminated place.

The house is very private and surrounded by conservation land, wood and rocks. The priority is the relationship between the inside and outside living space. Villa's inside material are used by main color palette is neutral cream tones, but traditional jewel tones are added throughout the space through the use of accessories. A large living room surrounded by all the amenities, a fireplace that is our tiny sun for the evening, casting long shadows over the Indonisian table beside the sofa made in Bali island. The decor of two armchairs and the two sofas in this space is busy but not cluttered, and its style adds to the old-world feel with a discerning strong symmetry in the space with suntrap opennings that lead out onto an adjoining terrace and a breathless flatland view in the early day light where is converting as a wonderful sunset later, at that combining the garden with the swimming pool. Going across the hall, stepping up two tiny stoops, is the kitchen and the dinning room making the feeling incorporate practical, stylish funiture that stand the test of time into this multi-functional space. 5 bedrooms for 11 persons: master bedroom 'sunset' with a kingsize bed, bedroom 'agas' and bedroom 'ecola' with 2 twin beds or double bed according to guest's requirement. The last but not least bedrooms 'lena' & ΄΄Paul'' are on the down floor with two double bed surrounded by a fireplace and a living room with it's en suite wc, in total Villa have 4 bathrooms and a wc . 4.000 square meters of lush green and garden where the vineyard is taking place, letting you free to enjoy the natural grapes wherefrom our traditional wine is made. Barbecue means different things in different regions, finding disparate geographic expression, in Crete barbecue means Fiesta where our traditional cuisine and culture taking place every time, following our cretan recipe you will be able to cook everything you can taste. Also for the lover's of cuisine we have a wood-fired brick that you can create your home made bread, and as well you can use it for your Italian nights creating delicious and fresh pizza. As the house is a part of nature 400m before the charming village of Koxare on your right side, following a narrow road of about 30 seconds drive. A 4x4 car is strongly suggested on crete or at least a car with automatic transmission for people that want to enjoy and live the cretan dream of beaches, mountains and other local places. Then you park inside the property and you will have to walk 20 steps up.... to paradise! The building has been recently fully restored, preserving the identity of the original stone building. The interiors are furnished with original designer and art pieces. The house is equipped with free Wi-Fi, satellite TV and DVD. Enjoy the swimming pool water shower and relaxation area.
